Helping the dwarves

Zarond is in Ered Luin, helping some dwarf merchants with their cargo. He wears practical clothes in green.

Wonder if they have more goods in here…

An adventure outfit for my elf champion. I’ve had the chest and legs in my wardrobe for a long time, and now I found a use for them. The cloak is a bit weird but I decided it could work in this outfit. I’ve mainly matched colours in this one, and not so much armour pieces. Maybe not my best outfit, but it looks good on my elf lad 🙂

Let’s go!

Chest: Jacket of the Friendship Stone, dark green, quest reward (71) A Prisoner to Stangard, Great River

Ambassador to the elves

Along the shores of the Anduin, an elderly Beorning is walking. She is an ambassador for her people, on the way to Lorien. She has dressed in a light summer dress and wears a golden cloak to match the golden leaves in the elf forest.

Here is the first of my new outfits, and it’s not that new, in fact, but I haven’t had time to do anything about it until now. I wanted to dress my Beorning girl in something a bit more fancy, and ended up with this look. The leaf-shaped shoulderpads and the gold and purple colours sort of hinted at Lorien. I don’t actually know if Beornings ever had any contact with Lorien, I’ll have to research that I suppose, but this is just an outfit, and not an official essay about Tolkien lore, after all 🙂

Head: Tactical Eastemnet Campaign Circlet, purple, T8 crafted (tailor)

Shoulders: Shoulders of the Deathstorm, gold, champion armour, skirm camp classic vendor

Back: Cloak of the Unwelcome Guest, gold, quest reward (70) Neighbours Meet, Great River

Chest: Langhar’s Tunic and Waistcoat, purple, beorning starter armour

Hands: Gloves of the Anorien Sun, purple, quest reward Vol IV, Book 4, Chapter 1: The Broken Causeway

Feet: Raskwith’s Boots, purple, quest reward (60) Death to the Invaders, Lothlorien

Dagger: Lanchigil x 2, quest reward Vol. II Epilogue: Sigileth’s Knives

Hello again

It has been a while since I wrote anything here, real life has kept me busy. But I have good news, I have made a bunch of new outfits that I will try to publish shortly, as soon as I get all the screenshots cropped and the items researched. I’ve used several armour pieces from the newer content, from Minas Tirith onwards, and also the new dyes we have gotten at festivals, plus some old pieces and old dyes, of course 🙂

Happy new year (a bit late…)

Just thought I’d write something…My posts here on this blog are becoming more and more sparse, and I can honestly say my inspiration to continue is diminishing. I feel like I have used all the nice cosmetics I have access to, and it’s getting harder and harder to think of new outfits and combinations of clothing. And then there is the music, which takes up more of my gametime these days, and also some nice things happening in my own life, that prevents me from spending time in Middle Earth as much as I used to. So, what I’m trying to say is that I will continue to play Lotro, but I might not make any new blog posts for a while. I wish all my readers a Happy New Year, and many fun adventures in the game, and outside it as well 🙂

Winterfest

screenshot00005

This blog has grown less active this last year, mostly due to lack of ideas and inspiration, and running out of good-looking items to use 🙂 Another reason is, I have become involved in the in-game music community, since early summer this year, and that is taking up a large portion of my game time. I have learned how to play music and had the great honor of playing with a band on this year’s Winterfest on Crickhollow. I asked permission to post a few screenshots showing our performance outfits, which were mostly red, green, and gold. I think we looked, and sounded, fabulous 🙂

Trollshaws elf

local21

Calardis is back in Eriador, in the Trollshaws, looking for inspiration to her music. She has dressed in soft fall leaf colours of gold and orange, to blend in with the landscape.

New outfit for my minstrel. I was tired of her Dunland outfit and decided to make another one instead of it, something that still fits the category of local outfits. I tried on the chestpiece and liked it, and the leafy pattern on it gave me the idea to make a fall-themed outfit. I had a bunch of other leafy pieces in my wardrobe, several from the Great River area, that I’ve wanted to use for a while, and dyeing some of them with the new sunset orange dye, and others gold, completed the style. A less colorful cloak to balance it, and the outfit was done. I really like it, and she wore it to a community event the same day 🙂
